Some good herbal treatments for acne include Calendula, which is derived from the marigold plant. It comes as a cream, lotion and also many health food stores carry the dried herb, which can be prepared as a face wash by adding 2 tablespoons of the herb to one cup of boiling water. Allow it to soak for about 10 minutes, strain and store liquid in refrigerator. Use cotton balls to swab your face at least three times a day.
